My colleague and I travel for work all over. After work, in the evenings we try to find the local speakeasies. Mechanics Institute was speakeasy-ish, and it was a great find! We had a little trouble finding the place –which is half the fun. But...More
This venue was highly recommended so I was surprised at how standoffish the staff were. Pretentious and unprofessional, but the chips were ok. If you love hipster indifference, you’ll love mechanics bar.
Located off a back lane opposite the State Library Carpark; this "Speak Easy" themed with dark wood; recycled type furnishings has various split level outdoor & indoor areas. Basic selection of wines expect to pay $20+ for a drink; has some food (didn't try). Austere,...More
A nice little watering hole tucked away in a tiny lane in Northbridge. They have an excellent gin and whisk(e)y selection and friendly, knowledgeable bartenders. The sitting area is classic hipster: small, dim, distressed furniture, easygoing. Free Wifi to boot.

This is a very nice pub in Northbridge but far from the noise of traffic jam or the confusion. They have a big terrace and a small part inside. They have s large range of beer and they offer some typical pub plate with look...More
A tad over 60, I did feel out of place in this hip and happening bar! However, a great find down a laneway, and as I still have memories of what "mechanics institutes" are, I wanted to check out the scene! SO we didn't look...More
